Have you tried learning Spanish before and given up? Does it seem impossible to do, no matter how hard you try? Then it’s time to rethink the way you develop new habits first. If you have tried it multiple times to no avail, then it’s not about you; it’s about your system.
Reconsidering your system represents a paradigm shift necessary if your previous attempts only worked for a while without consistent results. As James Clear states in his Atomic Habits, “You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.”
Creating a new habit is much more than just repeating a task over and over again until you don’t even notice it. It is a cornerstone to achieve something more significant. Think about it. If you have the habit of waking up early in the morning, why do you do it? It serves a bigger purpose, ranging from having more time during the day to feeling more energetic for your morning routine. Identifying that ultimate purpose is the most important step to developing a new habit. It’s what gives you the motivation to continue, even when things are hard.
How does this apply to learning Spanish?
So what is it that you want to ultimately achieve with better Spanish skills? The habit of learning Spanish is a means to improve your life. How will your life improve as your Spanish improves? Maybe you’ll become eligible for a promotion in your job. Maybe you’ll feel more confident as you travel to a Spanish speaking country. Maybe you’ll form a closer connection with one of the 400M Spanish speakers in the world.
